Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trip to the USA to undermine President Barack Obama's attempt to dialogue with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Rather than observing customary protocol—that is arranging the visit of a head of state with top officials in the country to be visited—Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner informed the White House of the Netanyahu invitation just 10 minutes before it was announced to the public, on Jan. 21, the morning after the president’s State of the Union address.

During a secret recording as reported by Israeli Channel 10 on July 9, 2010, the Israeli PM Netanyahu boastfully stated, "I know what America is. America is something that can be moved easily".

Several members of Congress are planning to boycott the speech. Civil Rights icon and Congressional Black Caucus member John Lewis (D-Ga.), and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) led the boycott. Assistant House Democratic leader Rep. James Clyburn, (D-S.C.), and CBC chairman G. K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) also announced they will not attend.

“I think it’s an affront to the president and the State Department what the speaker did.” Rep. Lewis told AP, calling Mr. Boehner’s actions “unprecedented” and the Netanyahu visit “politicized.” Rep. Butterfield said he was “very disappointed that the speaker would cause such a ruckus” among members of Congress. “To me, it is somewhat of an insult to the president of the United States,” said CBC member Rep. Greg Meeks, (D-N.Y.) “I’m not going to be there.”

Minister Farrakhan's comments were delivered during part 2 of his lecture titled, "The Intensifying, Universal Cry for Justice" delivered on March 1, 2015 at Mosque Maryam in Chicago, IL.
